Prophet Elisha (Elyas) As

And remember Our slaves, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (all) owners of strength (in adoration Us) and (also) of religious understanding. Indeed, we have chosen them, giving them (good thing) the memory of the house (in the Hereafter and they used to make people remember, and they used to call people to obey Allah and do good deeds for the hereafter). And they are our eyes, in truth, the choice and the best! And remember Ishmael, Elisha, and Dhul-Kifl, all are among the best. (Ch 38:45-48 Quran).
Ibn Ishaq said that Elisha (pbuh) was sent to the children after Elijah (pbuh). He lived among his people, calling them to Allah and respecting the laws of Elijah message and until his death. Then he raised a division among them, and events have momentum. Sins increase everywhere, and tyrants rose and killed the prophets.
According to Al-Hafiz Abu Al-Qasim ibn Asaker, Elisha was Ibn Adi, Ibn Shultam, Ibn Aphraem, Joseph Ibn, Ibn Isaac, Ibn Abraham. It was said that he was the cousin of Elijah. Other sources also said that he had been hiding in a cave with Elijah on the mountain to escape the king of Qasium Ba’alabak, and when Elijah died, Elisha succeeded him as a prophet among his people.
